Disaster Recovery Volunteers don’t volunteer on a regular basis but are only called out when a disaster strikes and Anglicare gets ‘activated’ to assist.
If you would like to join Anglicare’s Disaster Recovery volunteers, or your church would like to partner with us, simply complete an expression of interest.
Please note that this expression of interest is for future emergencies, not the current bushfire crisis, as all of our volunteers need to undergo training before entering the field.
Anglicare is one of four recognised Community Partners of Disaster Welfare Services of the Department of Communities and Justice under NSW Emergency Management Arrangements.
Anglicare only activates its volunteers when it receives orders from the NSW Department of Family and Community Services to ensure that disaster recovery activities are coordinated and officially recognised.
